And he drives along yelling and yelling

We drove back towards Hersonissos as we were staying again at the nice hotel, Terra Maris.   We enjoyed the drive.   I finally got a good picture of one of the many vehicles with a megaphone on the top and the driver shouting and shouting into it... David even passed it so I could get a really good shot.... LOL ...  why would anyone tolerate that noise?  But I do have to say it's a job and maybe it's good to have someone working even if they do wake up the baby. 

We went through some great little towns and some really long tunnels.  The ocean was beautiful sparkling blue with the rough coastal rocks a sharp contrast to it's beauty.   We took quite a few pictures .

.. It was our last day and we felt like we just hadn't seen enough! 

We had dinner at the motel buffet and paid extra for it.   It was a great selection and ultimately a great meal.  We returned to the room and sat out on the balcony drinking wine and talked about having to leave.     Actually we whined about leaving as we really had a great time.  While we were out there we saw a dog mauling a white cat about 1/2 mile away.  I was in tears watching it swing the cat around.   Then another dog came and they began to play leaving the cat laying...   And, miraculously, it jumped up and ran away... I was soooo happy.

We re-packed that night and felt prepared to leave the next morning to the mainland Greece and Athens.

It really was hard.... we aren't ready to go home and just wish we would be able to stay a few more weeks.... Even 6 weeks wasn't enough!!! Thanks so much for the smiles...
Dave had a great bday yesterday... there is only a place for one person's birthday so I put his... We both feel so young compared to our physical age... so we are sort of in denial.... it works!!!
